Best Restaurant, Reader's Choice: Khan B.B.Q. (seekh kebab)

Jim Newberry

Reader’s Choice

Khan B.B.Q.

Sometimes it’s difficult to access the abundance of edible riches along Devon Avenue because its Western Avenue gateway is occupied by the marvelous Khan B.B.Q. Owner Khalifa M. Amjad Khan and chef Sultan Ahmed both learned to cook from their mothers in Pakistan and have spent years here weathering the storms of the restaurant business, including a devastating 2006 fire that resituated the joint in its current spot. God love Alinea, Hot Doug’s, and, OK then, Lula too, but Khan is an emblem of egalitarian consistency—friendly, embarrassingly inexpensive—and every offering is always just plain delicious, from the charcoal-fired tandoor meats, such as the iconic chicken boti, to the simple stewy platters of chana masala and daal palak. And unlike some uncompromisingly ethnic spots around town, Khan doesn’t make customers suffer through an initiation period to get the real stuff. Open till midnight. Arrow 2401 W. Devon, 773-274-8600. —Mike Sula
